Spirit Airlines Apparently Now Limits Women’s Cleavage On Its Flights
Well, we all know Spirit Airlines is known for limiting what passengers can bring on board, but according to one woman who was recently kicked off a Spirit Airlines flight from New Orleans, Louisiana to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the airline kicked her off for showing too much cleavage. That’s right, the airline that also limits baggage has now allegedly kicked a woman off a flight for showing too much cleavage. However, the airline denies that was the case and instead says that it was based on her behavior, claiming she was intoxicated.
According to local news station ABC 10:
At least two passengers took to Facebook after the incident and posted that the flight attendants told the woman “her bosom was too exposed.”
Another passenger, who didn’t know the woman, was also removed from that flight Sunday after she stepped in to defend the woman.
Spirit claims a flight attendant made the suggestion to cover up, but that’s not why the woman was told to leave.
“Nobody was taken off a plane because of cleavage,” Spirit spokesman Paul Berry said. “People are taken off of planes because of their behavior.”
Berry said the woman was intoxicated and a flight attendant spoke to her about it.
“The flight attendant made that decision, and as she was leaving, she said, ‘By the way, you might want to cover up.’ It was more of a personal statement to her,” Berry said.
Here’s how one passenger described the situation:
So, just to break this down a bit…the airline claims she was asked to leave because she was intoxicated (despite the fact that no passenger has claimed that she was drunk) and then in an off way defends the flight attendant for making a “personal statement?” I’m sorry, when did it become the job of a Spirit Airlines flight attendant to dictate a woman how she should dress? Does the airline seriously believe a flight attendant making a “personal statement” about how a woman is dressed is appropriate company policy, regardless of how much cleavage was showing?
What makes this most interesting…just take a look back to a marketing promotion from 2014, where the dress of people advertising the airline was far worse than the cleavage showing for this passenger.
